Habitat for Humanity

Since Sklar Furnishings opened their doors in November 2002, we have established a strong partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Habitat provides “simple, decent, and affordable” housing for low income families. They bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. All worthy recipients of a home are required to be working full time, contribute 500 work hours towards the building of the house and assume a mortgage. Sklar Furnishings does our part by donating thousands of dollars in merchandise to the organization that in turn is sold in their ReStores; these proceeds go right back into Habitat for Humanity’s philanthropic endeavors. As well our staff have taken part in several builds and last May right around Mother’s Day we participated in the Woman’s Build. This is a home built in a week totally with women. Many of our women had secret talents – saws, staple guns and drills – who knew??

Our owner has been on the Board for 10 years and in 2016-2017 will fill the role of Chairman of the Board. Our company is thrilled to have donated two homes in the past three years and we do have plans to continue to do this. Habitat for Humanity in our area has also started a “Brush with Kindness” program that has young people putting a fresh coat of paint on homes adjacent to the new Habitat Homes. You can just feel the pride when you drive in these neighborhoods.

Please keep Habitat in your thoughts whenever you have furniture or home goods that you no longer need or can use – they will be happy to pick it up and you can feel good that you were able to contribute to a new home. Think also about volunteering for a build or Brush with Kindness day – your life will be changed. Guaranteed!
